On September 12, 2018, we gathered as a network with our friends Dhati & Angie Lewis via video conference call and they shared their collective wisdom on parenting through the unique lens of discipleship. Dhati & Angie are the parents of 6 children.
Dhati is the Lead Pastor of Blueprint Church in Atlanta and the Executive Director of Community Restoration with the North American Mission Board. He earned his Master of Arts in Cross Cultural Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary and most recently received his Doctorate of Ministry in Great Commission Mobilization from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is most passionate about making disciples, equipping urban leaders, and loving his family. On any given day you might find Dhati changing a plan, coaching his kids in basketball, or strategizing on a whiteboard. He is the author of both the Bible Study and book, Among Wolves: Disciple Making in the City.
Angie is mom to 6 children–-Trinity (8th), Jade (7th), Briaiah (5th), Dhati Jr (4th), Brayden (3rd) and Nathaniel (2nd). Angie invests her time in their local elementary school where she was given a job as parent liaison after volunteering for a semester–her job is to engage parents and the community to help transform the elementary school. The Lewis’ are avid basketball and soccer players with all 6 playing year round.

The Bible has a way of shocking us. If Americans could still blush, we might blush at the words God uses to describe Sex.
But, of course, sin always tries to trash God’s gifts. So we can’t just celebrate sex for what God made it to be; we have to fight what sin has turned it into. The contributors to this unique volume encourage you to do both: celebrate and struggle.

John Piper wants to help you faithfully walk the road to becoming husband and wife. Here you’ll find his counsel on practical topics like engagement, wedding planning, finances, and sex. But most importantly, John shares his single most important word on marriage: a vision grander than many of us have ever dared to dream, about what God is doing in every Christian marriage.
